Data Visualization: Making Numbers Talk

Formation Online

Tease a Story from the Numbers

You can make the numbers say what you  want… So it’s important to know what you  want to say! At once scientific and creative,  this storytelling workshop introduces  participants to data visualization techniques  and the pitfalls of certain types of graphics.  It exposes the power of well-chosen and  creatively communicated data and offers  training tools that are easy to reuse on a daily basis.

What is Data Visualization?

Data visualisation means knowing how to  represent data graphically, to make it  comprehensible at a glance. Sometimes  referred to as dataviz, data visualisation can  paint a simple picture of a complex situation  using graphical elements accessible to the  reader.
